[RC] Re:Deworming schedules - CMNewell
. A healthy horse with normal gut flora and good farm management will
only need worming twice a year, if that. I've seen reactions to wormers
and vaccines alike that are way worse than the WNV illnesses you are
And I've seen the innards of horses in surgery ly that were a godawful mess
from verminous arteritis. Interestingly, an older surgeon whom I know told
me the incidence of those is *way* down since the day when twice a year was
The optimum deworming interval for a given horse/herd varies widely
depening on a number of environmental and management factors. To generalize
that twice a year is all any hwalthy horse needs is foolish.
